Bawdy Storytelling

🎧 Episode 286:


‘Spicy Pervertible’ (McKenning Wood)

Hosted by Sexual Folklorist Dixie De La Tour

Opening Music: 8 Miles Wide by Storm Large


Episode Description:


Have you ever awakened so achingly horny that you can’t even complete the Highlights Word Search? Black Queer Activist McKenning Wood is freshly divorced as Pandemic hits, and the loneliness and indecision is overwhelming. What could eir perfect relationship look like? Casual? Committed? Vanilla? Polyamorous? And how do ey stay safe from COVID? As McKenning explores the possibilities, virtual kink play with person 1 bleeds over into in-person sex with someone else, thus we all learn that jalapeños are stubborn AF, and the produce department will do in a pinch (Pro Tip: McKenning’s pronouns are Ey / Em / Eirs). And Dixie heads out on Tour this week, are you ready for Bawdy On The Run?
